gets worse, and this is the jam the obama white house is in. >> the other big story that's been certainly talked about from the huffington post is the bangladesh tragedy. the garment facility that crumbled because of the way that it was made and the poor care going into it and then this makes us all think and take a double look at what we're wearing, where we're getting things and how it's coming in to the u.s. explain to all of us the bigger -- the connective tissue, that is, that we should be concerned about as americans when we look at that tragedy and realize that 500 people perished just going to work. >> right. you know, every time something like this happens, this is the worst one that's happened in a very, very long time, but every time there's a fire or a building collapse, the western world and the western brands kind of unite around the idea that okay, we're going to start inspecting these factories in bangladesh better. we're going to make sure that they have better standards. and they put all of the blame on bangladesh, as if they kind of had no idea that this was h
charges. white house officials tell me that president obama has been made aware of this arrest. at this point, they are not releasing any other reaction. this all started in the dates after the boston bombing. that is when these ricin-laced letters were intercepted at an offsite mail facility. so they never got close to president obama or to members of congress. obviously added to the tension here in the nation's capital. >> quickly, before you let you get out of here, elvis imperson negotiate, sounds like the beginnings of a farrelly brothers' movie plot. what is that about? >> the rivalry seems to be long and complicated and involves a number of different sort of fights between the two men. i can tell you in one instance, the elvis impersonator, paul kevin curtis, claimed to be a part of -- a society called mensa society, basically for people who have high iq scores. well, dutschke took exception too that. -- exception to that. he called curtis out on that, said you are not being truthful about this . so, that is one of the fights the two had. hard to pinpoint where their dis
obama made news saying all the options the white house is currently energy syria, boots on the ground, u.s. troops, not one of those options, how surprised are you by that? >> not surprised given the administration's incredible caution. i applaud that we don't want another iraq. we have to act. the syrian opposition is begging for weaponry. assad is wing, broken the blockade of a few bases and the world sort of weight, more moderate members of the foreign army, general broke want al qaeda-aligned jihadist rebels. he says he has more secular forces and begging us for simple things, one way to start if we art rebels, millen anti-tank missiles, they can taken out syrian armor. the fear would be someday they might be used against israeli forces but not talking anti-aircraft missile this is not sophisticate bud could make a difference, i think. i was speaking with someone yesterday and they said this is specifically the kind of weapon we want. very effective against armor. >> what's it called again? >> the millen anti-tank missile. >> the millen anti-tank missile. >> they have small arms, but
problem. >> white families were four times as healthy as nonwhite m families. how much of a concern is this for the obama administration. we hit the 100-day benchmark for the president in his second term. >>> i think it's a concern for him but i think a lot of people are frustrated that this isn't the front of his agenda and congress's agenda more. before the election you heard congress and the president constantly mentioning jobs, jobs, jobs. now you don't hear that as much. there's many more focus on immigration, gun control legislation. these are all important issues but a lot of people would like to see congress again looking toward economic recovery, toward recovering the housing market and what to do about the fact that so many people don't have jobs. >> as you bring up, immigration is something that the president ran on in '08 and 2012. this problem with syria is something that skould have been anticipated as we've been watching a humanitarian crisis gho on in that country for the last two years. on the daily rundown, there was a man that appeared with check chuck. i want to
cain, one of the most vocal critics from that white house with regards to a policy on syria. at what point dot we hear more criticisms from the gop over the obama camp towards this? >> they're walking a very fine line. jackie mentioned, you have a very war wary public after the wars in iran and iraq. as we've seen over the last couple of year, the vast majority of americans want more of a focus on u.s. policy issues. you have the boston bombings over the last two weeks. that's really where americans are going to be focused. so how far do the gop senators want to go with this? we'll see hawks like lindsey graham and john mccain talking a lot about this, but it's not clear yet to the extent to which this is captured the interest of the american people. >> pivot to boston and talk about the investigation. david, your perspective on the radicalization. you have a unique perspective. were you held specifically in the tribal areas of pakistan for about seven months. what did you discover about the militants who were holding you captive, and what can we glean from your experience about the proces
